She doesn’t seem to have learned that lesson for herself:
In her interview, the woman said she would never have consented to sex with Mr Bacon because he was 'not her type', and she did not feel the need to 'chase after a 20-something man'.Darling, after six bottles of wine, they’re all Brad Pitt, aren’t they? Or Lord Cholmondley, if that’s what floats your boat…
She told the newspaper: 'I'm fussy about the men I date, I'm quite a snob. For example, I would never date a brick-layer.'
She said she did not blame herself for what happened and did not regret the drinking.Well, of course not! That’s the prevailing attitude, isn’t it, these days? Someone else is always to blame…
'I concede I was drinking far more than I should have been-far more than was good for me-and as a result I've since cut back on my drinking. But what happened wasn't my fault.'
She claimed she would never willingly have sex in such a drunken state, and could not understand why Mr Bacon had not noticed how inebriated she was.Perhaps he didn’t know that, sweetie. Perhaps it never got as far as nicknames. Perhaps you failed to mention your unfortunate ‘condition’, you know, in case he thought you were some kind of old lush?
'My nickname is Baggy because, when I drink, my face drops and sags very obviously,' she told the newspaper.
And perhaps he’d had one too many as well, did that thought ever occur to you?
The woman admitted that she knew her story was weak and that, were she defending such a case in court herself, she would be confident of getting the defendant acquitted. But she reported the incident to police out of 'a moral duty to other women'.Oh, good grief! Self awareness isn’t this woman’s strong point, is it?
And ‘morals’? A little late in the day to discover those, I think…
But she’s got someone else to blame now:
She believes the acquittal was due, in part, to the fact that seven of the 11 jurors were female.Not all other women.
'In date rape trials, women tend to side with men. That is their inherent nature. They judge other women more harshly. That is my experience.'
Just the ones who get blotto, and in trying to evade any responsibility, choose to put a blameless young man through a hellish court case you know you don’t have a hope of winning….
